Legislative Year: 2019 Change

Colorado Eyes & Ears »

The 2019 General Assembly has introduced 244 bills as of January 27. Ninety-five are bipartisan, 84 have Democratic sponsors and 65 have all GOP sponsors.

So far, the subjects with the most legislation are education and school finance at 38 bills, health and insurance at 27 bills, public health at 20 bills, crime and enforcement at 17 bills, and natural resources at 10 bills.

The House has 16 bills assigned to State, Veterans, and Military Affairs, aka the kill committee. Twelve of those bills have GOP-only sponsors. Two of three bills sponsored by minority House leader Patrick Neville, one to take down the income tax rate from 4.63% to 4.25% and the other to allow concealed carry of guns on school grounds lost in the House SVMA.

The Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs, aka the kill committee, has 19 bills. Eleven have GOP-only sponsors. So, for example, Automatic Law Waivers for School Districts, with GOP sponsor Sen. Owen Hill, with an education and school finance subject, was already killed in SVMA.

Five House bills are postponed indefinitely, all with GOP sponsors. Five Senate bills are killed, all with GOP sponsors.  PEN
